Washington D.C.—Nevada Senator Harry Reid made the following statement on Secretary Hilda Solis’ visit to Nevada.
“I thank Secretary Solis for taking the time to come to Nevada. She understands very well the challenges facing our state. This recession has hit Nevada harder than just about any other state with the highest foreclosure rate in the country and over 10 percent unemployment.
This is why I have been working with the administration to bring $1.5 billion in economic recovery funding to the families, businesses, and community organizations that need it. I thank Secretary Solis for her meetings at Nevada Partners as they prepare workers for jobs in the renewable energy economy and other high demand industries.
Nevada Partners has been a leader in employment services, training, education, and community development programs designed to help adults, youth, and unemployed workers achieve success at school, in the workplace and in their communities. As a result of their efforts and smart investment from the economic recovery package Nevada will have a workforce that is vibrant and competitive, making our state a leader in clean energy.”
